  • 107 Sinnoh Region Pokémon Added to Pokémon PON Stamp Line

    03.June.2020 | ANIME&GAME

    Online hanko store Hankos released a new collection of stamps in its “Pokémon PON” stamp line on May 30 which are based on 107 Pokémon from the Sinnoh region. Hanko are a type of stamp or seal traditionally used in place of signatures in Japan. They are crafted with people’s names and unique symbols.

    Pokémon PON are made-to-order hanko stamps which feature a Pokémon of your choice and a name in Japanese writing. The Sinnoh region stamps follow the release of the Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn region themed stamps.

    The 107 designs include the Sinnoh starter Pokémon Turtwig, Piplup, and Chimchar, as well as the Legendary Pokémon Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, and Mythical Pokémon Shaymin, Darkrai, and Arceus.

    When ordering your stamp you pick your favourite Pokémon and give your name to be written on it. This can be your actual name, surname, pen name, social media name and so on. Keep in mind though that there is a character limit: three Kanji, five Hiragana or Katakana, and up to six alphabet letters.

     

    There are three different fonts and several types of hanko. One type produces ink by itself meaning you don’t have to buy an ink pad. The wooden type can also be used with most banking facilities in Japan.

    Pokémon PON stamps are packaged in an exclusive Pikachu and Eevee box.
